1 Master of Divinity The Master of Divinity is a professional degree open to anyone, regardless of whether you wish to become a Unity minister. People who are interested in Unity licensing and ordination must also be accepted into Unity Worldwide Ministries Unity Ministry Path (see the section on Admissions for further information). Upon graduation, students will achieve the following program outcomes: M D-1. Spiritual and Personal Development: Demonstrate a pattern of holistic growth in personal and spiritual consciousness. M D-2. Foundational Knowledge: Demonstrate professional competency through the integration of knowledge and methodology in the areas of Scripture, theology, historical studies, communication, pastoral studies, leadership and administration. M D-3. Ministry Skills: Demonstrate essential skills for effective ministry, including the areas of worship ceremonies, education, leadership, administration and pastoral ministry. M D-4. Cultural Context: Demonstrate an understanding of the structures, processes and issues found in the historical, contemporary, cultural, ethical and scientific contexts within which the minister operates. These program outcomes are addressed and assessed in the following core courses: Historical and Theological Studies HTS 511 History of Christianity I (3) HTS 512 History of Christianity II (2) HTS 551 Metaphysical Theology I (3) HTS 552 Metaphysical Theology II (3) HTS 534 Theological Ethics (2) Ministry A rts and Skills MAS 501 Pastoral Counseling I (2) MAS 504 Pastoral Counseling II (3) MAS 506 Pastoral Studies (2) MAS 531 Homiletics I (3) MAS 532 Homiletics II (3) MAS 533 Creating Spiritual Services (2) MAS 551 Ministry Leadership (3) MAS 552 Ministry Administration (3) MAS 553 Ministry Development (3) MAS 571 Education Theory and Practice (2) Spirituality and Society SAS 511 Trends in Contemporary Society (2) SAS 512 Unity in Contemporary Society (2) 13

To be granted a degree, a student must complete the Master of Divinity program within six years of beginning the program; complete at least one chapel service unless on the Unity Ministry Path (see Chapel Service below); and submit a portfolio prior to graduation. Further information about the portfolio and contents is in the Unity Institute and Seminary Student Handbook. Graduation from Unity Institute and Seminary does not guarantee Unity licensing or ordination, which is governed by Unity Worldwide Ministries. Master of Divinity education has a complex goal: the spiritual, personal, vocational, and academic formation of the student. Due to the importance of a comprehensive community of learning, the Master of Divinity cannot be viewed simply as an accumulation of classes or individual work. In order to ensure the appropriate educational community, at least one year of full-time academic study or its equivalent shall be completed at the main campus of the school awarding the degree. Chapel Service: Students on the Unity Ministry Path must complete a second chapel service. Additional information regarding requirements for Chapel Services is in the Unity Institute and Seminary Chapel Service Handbook. Additional Requirements for Students on the Unity Ministry Path The following is provided for informational purposes only. For complete requirements regarding Licensing and Ordination, contact the Credentialing Department, Unity Worldwide Ministries, at or via at Completion of Unity Worldwide Ministries Polity Completion of a second PRA 694 Internship in Church Ministry class 14
